Space and science websites you want to check out...


A good, well moderated, tolerant, forum can be a great informal way to learn about what's going on out there. The three I've listed have different styles, but all are worth a vist and free to join (although may have paid for sections):
A formal and science heavy site, but also friendly and very tolerant towards newcomers. Focuses on unmanned probes and science missions. Not the place for wild speculation, but everyone there is knowledgeable as hell

More broad in scope and slightly more relaxed in feel than, but still tightly run. A favourite hangout for NASA scientists and engineers 

More relaxed than either of the others, but still well moderated. Special sections are reserved for wilder ideas and speculation, although be warned: If you say something controversial - Moon landing was fake, UFO's are real etc - you'll be challenged to back it with evidence
